to Matt and all,
Actually there were only three to start with for #22 so, in answer to your question, maybe. Our original case maker, Toda-san has had a year of serious illness and will not be making cases for us for the forseeable future. We wish him and his family well and pray for a recovery for him.

We are now working with a company in Hong Kong who makes cases for Dave Bull but they do not want to make small quantities. So we are ordering 200....yes 200 cases. This will take all of our treasury money and it may take us two years to sell them all as we usully have about 10-12 sold per exchange. We plan to have two sizes and offer them for sale at any time on the mall....provided we actually get them. All is in limbo due to the language barrier, the problems of a small order ( 200 is a very small order for this company ) so I don't have a good answer for you. People have ordered them, I have held the orders....before I realized this was happening I did process a few so if anyone paid for a case they did not receive, let me know off line and I will try to figure out where I am on this. I have a list, sort of.....

In future If people order cases individually and not with an exchange they will have to pay postage for shipment from Oregon, assuming we get the cases.

This is not the answer I wish I could give you...but as we know more we will post it. I do have a very few odd sizes and will post them one day soon...a few of the long narrow ones from the all hanga exchange and maybe a couple of small narrow ones...I will get a list up soon if anyone wants one.

I have been remiss in my baren duties this last week or so as I have been moving my studio...I have aches in muscles I did not even know I had....the muscles in my rear end even hurt from lifting heavy if anyone sent me any emails, I will get to all today as I am having a weekend of rest before I fall apart. Makes you realize you are not 25 anymore. I have the mental energy, but my body is just not following through.
Best to all,
Barbara/mall manager
